Hi from Italy.
I'm so glad you gave your attention to our saint francis....he's really the saint patron of the PLANET EARTH !
i had the chance to see your special program about saint francis when it was broadcasted by CBS , and i'm so glad to see it on this wonderful web site.
You know that a lot of people from all over the world are walking along the paths of "Cammino di Francesco" (Saint Francis' Walk), and many of them come from USA . It's a great experience, and you don't need to be strictly catholic to love it....you just need to love the planet you live in .Our nature is so beautiful ! Our environment is so unspoiled !
You can connect with www.camminodifrancesco.it (there is a good english version) to discover the beauty of these places around the Holy Valley of Rieti .
I want to thank you about mentioning the beautiful unknown sites you described in your special
Thanks Michelle!
